Black & White
Story One: City of Heroes
Great dialogue, easily interpreted and timely in syntax. Text bubbles are set for left to right read through, and never divert from the pattern which provides easy reading.
A fast paced introduction with sharp dialogue references equating to a quick ramp up to character background knowledge and setup.
War Witch is a self-assured female superhero sporting excellent Karma and strong Chi.
This simple introduction story line shows War Witch and Apex simply going back to their apartment in Paragon City but their travel is impeded by killer-robot-zombies...or some such "thing". At the closing panel our duo is still trying to peal off the seriel number from a robot-zombie's arm picked up after the last brawl before finally heading home.
Great intro piece makes me look forward to issue #1
Story Two: MacBeth
Verbatum. That is the beauty of BKSs version of MacBeth. The art, layout and blocking successfully support Shakespeare’s epoch. I’ve always felt the witches were perfect foder for the comic format, BKS proves me right.
Scene 1: Enter the three Witches......and so it goes to their meeting with MacBeth proclaiming his impending status as King "All Hail MacBeth! That shalt be King hereafter!"
Four more issues, four more scenes.
The very nature of the project, as well as successful expression thereof, demands the series to be collected in full. Excellent comic from a studio that will surely make it’s mark as a “must have” publisher.
